    I just saw on iPad that Kenneth passed. We were childhood neighbors for years. I miss all the Biddles and the memories.

    Christen Biddle says:

    Pawpaw, I miss you so much. I miss your hugs, your great wisdom, your tender heart, and your quiet laughter. I feel so lucky to have known such a great man for half of my life. You will never be forgotten. I love you and I will see you later.

    Jeanette Sterling says:

    Sue I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of Kenneth. You and your family are in my prayers for comfort and peace. I’m heartbroken to know you have to go through this but know that you will be with him again. Love, Jeanette & Ronnie Sterling

    Mark Garsee says:

    When I die
    Give what’s left of me away
    To children
    And old men that wait to die.
    And if you need to cry,
    Cry for your brother
    Walking the street beside you.
    And when you need me,
    Put your arms
    Around anyone
    And give them
    What you need to give to me.

    I want to leave you something,
    Something better
    Than words
    Or sounds.

    Look for me
    In the people I’ve known
    Or loved,
    And if you cannot give me away,
    At least let me live on in your eyes
    And not on your mind.

    You can love me most
    By letting
    Hands touch hands,
    By letting
    Bodies touch bodies,
    And by letting go
    Of children
    That need to be free.

    Love doesn’t die,
    People do.
    So, when all that’s left of me
    Is love,
    Give me away.

    I’ll see you at home
    In the earth.

    Brian & Amy Blackwell says:

    So sorry for your loss. Keeping the family in out prayers.
